PATTERN PUSHER – SINGLE REVIEW

Pattern Pusher – Layla And Madman 
Pattern Pusher - Layla And Madman


Release Date: Out Now

Exeter quartet Pattern Pusher have only been recording with the legendary John Cornfield which must be fairly intimidating. I mean, imagine setting up your gear in front of someone who has worked with the likes of Robert Plant, The Stone Roses, Muse, Supergrass and, erm, Razorlight. Anyway, balls of steel aside, these lads have a Cornfield produced single ready to peddle so listen up, ‘Layla and Madman’ needs our attention. I’m instantly in love with this, from the squelchy, bassy synth that reminds me of Goose and Transformer, to the smooth, silky vocal delivery that has something of the Everything Everything chaps about it. Some loose, driving drums and a persistent tambourine completes the sound and fans of LCD Soundsystem, Hot Chip and the Arcade Fire should be pretty damn excited by this tune. I can just see a mass of sweaty, hedonism bound bodies bouncing in glorious unison to the drum and bass combination that builds to a glorious and quasi-sexual climax. No nerves here, then, a big tune to match those big balls. Well played gents, more please.
